Charity's concern over 'inexperienced' aid work

The mass of money donated to tsunami-hit countries has led to too many organisations working in the disaster zones without adequate skills, Oxfam warned.
The leading aid charity said, one month on from the devastating quake, that in some cases the influx of funds had enabled agencies to work in the areas despite lacking the essential experience.

Oxfam praised the immense response to the tragedy, but called on international governments and the United Nations to bring in accreditation for all agencies and to monitor their ability.
